I would have to say for military M9 and Aimpoint.

I'm in the military and that's what we use. They both are simple to use and durable. Both needed with the troops we have coming in the military these days!

But as for what I would choose and i have they are in my gun locker a glock 17Long slide and a EoTech.

But above all the best pistol is the 1911 I shoot better with it then Anything.

I used to love seeing the Pogey's running around with the magazine inserted backwards in their M16. The pointy end of the bullet is supposed to point to the front!!!

Yeah there is alot of folks in the military that need better training of the mind, I once had a officer (not a green horn, a proven officer) that was all about it and everything very HUH! But when we go to qualify at the range, he needed help with assembly and disassembly of his m4!

See it's things like that that make me so mad. Why would I then want that officer to be my co and lead me into combat? Rediculous...

I had to help my Louie clean his M16 (before we got so many M4's to go around). But I can somewhat understand that, as he was a brand new butterbars and didn't have much time with the rifle, and rarely fired it on the training ranges.

I just had to point out the things to look for and give him some verbal pointers on how to clean it, and he flew through it, learned very quickly.

He proved himself in combat later. Charged a Tallywacker cave with nothing but an E-tool and Bayonet. Somehow managed to survive it too.
